Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Good French cuisine, not exceptional. Okay service. Wonderful pastries. Excellent bakery when you can buy goodies to take home.

It is very small shop where you can find very nice pastry and cakes. There is also some soda available. Service is pretty poor and seating options outside are not in good shape

The Spanish Ballroom at Glen Echo Park is the venue for great swing dances on Saturday evenings. Great floor, pleasant atmosphere, great live bands, good people -- but no air conditioning! So Praline, which is the one air-conditioned publicly open place in the building, does...a lively business at the first band break. Add really good ice cream and outstanding service, and you've got a winner!More

Although I still love this place and its local staff, the problems are happening too often and too seriously to merit my previous five-star review. The freezer broke, Corporate management didn't see any reason to order ice cream when it was still chilly out. The...freezer broke again. C'mon, folks. The local staff can only do so much to compensate for blatant failures in upper management.More

This delightful little ice cream and pastries place is just the ticket during the band's first break at a Saturday evening dance. Even on a chilly night, you get warm at the Spanish Ballroom's fabulous swing dances, and Praline provides the perfect break -- not...to mention the only air conditioning in the building! Great ice cream and cookies, haven't tried any of the other offerings.More

Praline is perfect for lunch, coffee or dessert before or after your show, dance, or general Glen Echo visit. Located within the park, just steps from the theater, galleries, carousel, and Spanish Ballroom, Praline has delicious sandwiches (especially if you love the real French baguette-type...sandwich), cupcakes (especially the carrot cake--real carrot pieces and pineapple), soup (corn soup the day we visited--real corn, excellent flavor), and cookies (the Mexican wedding cookies were perfectly textured). The staff is friendly and helpful. They also serve ice cream (fresh scooped or pre-packaged cones for kids), coffee, and other baked goods. This is one of those lovely little bakeries where things actually taste as good as they look. The sandwiches were $8 - $10, the cupcakes were $2.75. Note that there is no indoor seating, but there are plenty of picnic tables outside. The park was quite busy when we were there and yet there were still lots of empty tables.More
